Open firing is one of the most primitive methods of firing ceramics and requires a great deal of skill to produce pottery. The process involves heating clay to a high temperature, in an outdoors custom built firing oven, causing it to harden and become more durable.
The final appearance of a fired piece is dependent on several factors, including the firing temperature, duration, weather conditions, and drying time. These variables can affect the texture, color, and overall look of the piece. Firing ceramics is a delicate process that requires careful attention to detail and expertise.
Since the clay pieces are exposed directly to the strong flames for a period of time, they often carry a smoky scent that diminishes with use. However, a warm, earthy smell of clay remains, adding to the overall character of the piece. Open firing is a time-honored technique that has been used for centuries to create unique and beautiful ceramics.
The finishing process is natural and looks different on every piece. Keep in mind that your purchase won't look exactly as the pictures on the website.
